She's been playing gigs in record shops, buying and playing lots of vinyl, and made her new album, 'Nost', using mainly analogue equipment. Her seventh album is a real return to the dancefloor — deliberately so. It was created in her long-term home, Berlin — from where she runs her label, BPitch Control — although she now spends the summer months living in Ibiza. 'Nost' — taken from the term 'nostalgia' — is the sound of a DJ/producer still at the top of her game, as much in love with electronic music old and new as she's ever been.
Ellen Allien has announced her next album, 'Nost', will drop via her BPitch Control label on 12th May.
A prolific producer — this will be Allien's seventh solo album (eighth overall following 2006's 'Orchestra Of Bubbles' LP with Apparat) — the techno stalwart harnesses nostalgia to direct her new release, hence the name 'Nost'.
Allien's 25 years as a staple of the Berlin scene informs her sound, resulting in her first club-focused album since 2010's 'Dust'.
